WordPress: This tool has become quite good!
Working on a project has compelled me to examine tools that I’ve looked at previously. One of them is WordPress and boy…has this tool ever matured!
Not only are there alot of themes and plugins, the administration capabilities and user interface is really well done. It works really well. So well, I’m thinking seriously of climbing the learning curve and using this tool for several things going forward.
Just for grins, I exported all of this blog’s posts (Typepad exports a Movable Type-formatted text file) and imported it into WordPress. It worked flawlessly though all the image URL’s point back here to this blog, so if I opted to change platforms myself I’d have to re-insert every single image in every single post. Tedious…but possible.
There is also a hosted WordPress offering worth looking at too.

Connecting the Dots Podcast
Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows.
